Forum: GratefulDead Subject: The Dead at the Filmore with Duane! 2-11-70

I am sure this has been highlighted before but it is so hot.

Reviewed by Dr. Flashback:

Unbelieveably, the Dead played the Fillmore East TWICE in the winter of 70,a Jan and Feb run of shows which, in my opinion, may be the best of the entire year. This show is a "dress rehersal" for their monster 2-night stand on the 13th & 14th when they were touring with the Allmans.
I was stunned the first time I heard this tape, and it never fails to delight and astound years later. The sheer energy and excitement come thru in every song. Scorching versions of Cumberland, NFA and the Other One. And the Dark Star is just about as perfect as can be, stellar sound quality and great ensemble playing by the guys. The addition of Duane, Greg and Peter Green on the jams and Lovelight really makes this "one of those nights". Even with all the cuts, this show makes my top 5. A show that must be cranked up to be appreciated! Enjoy.

p.s. Here is what another guy you might know had to say about this show:

A quick note:
for those of you who have read Owsley's report on the subject: there were indeed two shows each night of this run. The mad chemist just didn't tape the first shows and refused to admit it. The first set of this night is also available for dl.

The Allman's were on the bill as has been captured on the out of print release through dead.net. If you check in Dead Base or on the AB website, you will see the starting times of each show.

Finally, I know since I was at this run. Three very long and intense nights! The changes between sets were not as tedious as Owsley claimed. Drums were nailed to risers, amps were shared, and everything was wired and ready to before the first note on the 11th. That show was quite laid back. The first set was Uncle John, Cryptical> Drums> Other One> Cryptical, Dire Wolf, Casey Jone--not the best set of the week--in fact, probably the weakest, but still quite fine. As set two unfolded, We could see the Allman's et.al. hanging behind the amps off stage right. When the extra musicians came on stage, the place went nuts--part of the audience was pissed that so many other musicians were going to weigh down the dead, while the rest knew they would fuel the boys to great heights. What an amazing set. Peter Green holding his own and some, Duane--well, Duane could pull Garcia's pants off. light them on fire, and lip them back on before Jerry even noticed--he was that stellar. Greg added his own flair to the proceedings. Berry Oakly came out in Lovelight and played so hard on Phil's bass some thought he destroyed it--but that last boom is the battery giving out.

The energy from this evening carried through to the next two nights which, since I'm sure no on here has ever heard them, were classics.

Dude thanks for clarifying because I did read The Bears report a while ago I am now wondering if there is possibly more to be released from this stellar run of shows. IE the basement tapers or an audience tape.

This happened to be one of my favorite shows for a while and the 33 minute Lovelight is a truly epic jam. I listened to it this morning for the first time in months and (and was blown away again)then I saw your post and had to comment out of sheer synchronicity... Definitely worth many listens :)

We did just have this one up recently while you were on hiatus. Most excellent jams abound... A free for all Lovelight!
